The main goal of this work is to exploit different tools in order to approximate a general double exponent fractional-order transfer function. Through the appropriate selection of the two fractional orders of this function, different types of filters can be derived. The investigated approximation tools are either curve fitting based tools or the Padé approximation tool, and the derived approximated transfer functions in all cases have the form of rational integer-order polynomials, which can be easily realized electronically. © 2020, Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature.
